jim pinto’s Toolcards and John G’s Game Design


Hello Friends. This week we have a long episode but it’s just filled with good stuff. After the introduction of John G and a bit of news and gaming talk we have an excellent interview with jim pinto. I know I have the name in lowercase but that’s how he likes it. We talk about his Toolcards kickstarter but we also get into a lot of other interesting things concerning gaming philosophy and design. Then Mark and I chat with John G about the game he is designing and really hash out a lot of idea’s surrounding mechanics and their purpose and the line between GMing and designing. Hope you enjoy and let us know what you think.

    Ain’t gonna lie, I squeed when Jim said The Quiet Year isn’t a game. Vindication even if Jim wasn’t trying to be that harsh.
